Summary

(0:40)SAN DIEGO -- The 2020 Houston Astros, meet the 2004 Boston Red Sox. You two have much in common and could soon be the only members of an incredibly exclusive club.With Friday's 7-4 win, the Astros have joined those Red Sox as the only clubs in major league history to force a Game 7 after trailing a best-of-seven series by three games. After blowing a 3-0 series lead, the pressure is mounting on Tampa Bay. If history is an indicator, then the pressure has eased considerably on the Astros."Our execution was improving and things were trending in the right direction, offensively, defensively and pitching," said Bill Mueller, a member of that 2004 Red Sox club that eventually went on to win the World Series. Tanyon Sturtze was a member of the 2004 Yankees, who like those Red Sox, will equally live in history -- but on the other side."We knew Game 7 was going to be tough for us and it was over real quick," said Sturtze, referencing Boston's six-run lead in the second inning.
